L. Aubry Fils BrutVinification is all in stainless steel tank. In addition, the malolactic is always encouraged, as the Aubrys feel that acidity is never lacking in the wines, and they would prefer to have slightly lower acidities and be able to use a very low dosage than have high acidities and be forced to dose the wines more. The most remarkable thing about Aubry is that, through almost archaeological search for old plant varieties, they have succeeded in making a brilliant Champagne out of three forgotten grape types: Pinot Gris, Arbanne, and Petit Meslier. Furthermore many grapevines are planted "en foule," as they were before phylloxera.
Tenuta di Ghizzano Veneroso 1996It is the historical wine of the farm, and therefore the most representative of it. It was first made in the year 1985 and, with its elegance and persistence, it can be said to interpret the specific characteristics of the terroir (earthy taste). It is made from Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, with a small percentage of Merlot. It has become a milestone for the wine-growing area where it originated.
